Signed out!

Today, I did it officially. Signed out of the placement process. Physically it was nothing. A signature on a paper that was half of an A4 sized paper… Did not take even two minutes. But at the mental and psychological level, I can feel the relief as well as the challenges ahead. Today I do not have much to say. I would like to look back 10-15 years from now and see what I have to say about this decision. For now, “Product Manager” in a Software start-up it is, officially. Unofficially, I hope it will involve lot many more things and I am looking forward to that.

  1. In this short period i have spent in jobs, i have felt “Product Management” is one of the most deceptive role. In a couple of companies they were the driving the whole thing and could provide appropiate direction and the most affluent person in the group – typically small companies and customers located in same geography. In all MNCs where product managers were designing products for US market, i find that they were in a marciful state. A lot of them were designing $4 commodity product where the market is mature enough and rules are laid down. It was a commodity product and at the end the success of product was drive more by performance and reliability. At the same time later companies were providing more returns from compensation point of view. Be cautious of large e-com MNCs :-), although they pay tons for that kind of job (a lot more than 6 digits salaries per month :-)).

  2. He, he, agree with you. I have mentioned what I am joining and am clear about the role. The title is just because there needs to be one. I am only trying to get comfortable with whatever the title is 😉
